This bird cage awl and burnisher were made with a kits from Czeck Edge ( you can find them at the same web site ) I’m not totally sure what the wood is , it came from an assortment pack bought at WoodCraft . I think its either Bloodwood or African Paduak , hard to tell from the picture but this wood is bright red. The kits are of the highest quality and all the parts are made in the USA, they were fun little projects to do . The bird cage blank was 1-1/2” x 1-1/2” x 4” the burnisher blank was the same only 6” long .

Czeck edge was at the Lie-Nielsen show last month in Frederick, MD. I saw this kit and others… I could have used a good burnisher last night. Enjoyed talking with the folks there.

Nice job making these.

They look great. I order some stuff from them last week and look forward to checking out my goodies. Any problems or tips you learned while making yours or are they straight forward.

Thanks.

Alan no problems at all , the Czech Edge kits are first class . I drilled the blanks on the lathe , thats usually how I drill most of my tool handles . The kits have pretty good directions on the back , I made some mock up handles just to see how I would get the different fancy profiles . That was helpful and saved me from wasting good stock . I’m fairly new to turning, mostly a pen turner .
